3 rob Zombie Living Dead Girl(hellBilly Deluxe, 1998)
While the song itself is a veritable smorgasbord of horror references, including nods to Lady Frankenstein (1971), Daughters Of Darkness (1971) and The Last House On The Left (1972), it’s perhaps the video for the track that features the most obvious tribute, coming straight from the showreel of one of cinema’s first horror masterpieces, 1920’s The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari. rob himself is cast as the titular Doctor, alongside wife and frequent collaborator Sheri Moon Zombie in the role of the living Dead Girl in a gloriously daft, black and white ode to horror’s earliest days.
CHOICE LYRIC: “Crawl on me / Sink into me / Die for me / Living dead girl”
